Soil carbon sequestration and the conservation of existing soil carbon stocks, given its multiple benefits including improved food production, is an important mitigation pathway to achieve the less than 2 °C global target of the Paris Climate Agreement.
New maps show massive potential to store more carbon in farmland soils through better management practices, contributing to global emission reduction targets; the US emits 5 billion tonnes of CO2 equivalents each year.
The Inherent Connection Between Farmers, Business, Climate Change and Our Dinner Plates.
Shefali Sharma with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) talks Big Meat and Dairy and its supersized climate footprint.
COP23 negotiations could actually focus on real solutions if polluting corporations acknowledged their contribution to climate change, and transitioned away from chemical- and factory farm-based agriculture to a system focused on soil health, animal welfare, nutritious food and farmworker rights.
These large, sustained governmental afforestation, reforestation, and forest restoration programs provide evidence for the scale of carbon removals that are achievable through active interventions centered on tree planting and maintenance, and for what is required to achieve such significant results.
Coalition of mayors in the Philippines form League of Organic Agriculture Municipalities and Cities (LOAMC) to ban GMOs, toxic farming chemicals.
